Summary of The Day: After breakfast, we'll proceed to the park station for a morning briefing before enjoying the highlight of the trip - Gorilla trekking, which may last the entire day.
We trek the gorillas through the bamboo covered slopes, accompanied by a guide and trackers, in search of a mountain gorilla family. The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten.
When the gorillas are sighted, visitors will be guided to within 6 metres from the gorillas, sit around them for a whole hour while gazing into their big round eyes.
Gorilla trekking is unpredictable. It’s difficult to foresee how many hours you will hike. The gorilla excursion can take from 2 up to 8 hours. Expect to walk along distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. A good physical condition is recommended.
For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is limited to one hour. A ranger will brief you on how to behave with the gorillas.
Summary of The Day: You will wake up early and drive through twisted and winding roads, and lake dotted countryside, before you get to the lower thorn and savannah scrub lands of Lake Mburo National Park.
Mburo is one part in the country with noticeably different fauna compared to other reserves for example the widespread acacia woodland which makes it the best place in the country to see the gargantuan eland antelope, as well as zebra, topi, impala, and several acacia-associated birds.
The five lakes within the park are home to a hippo population of hippos, crocodiles and a variety of water birds, while swamps hide enigmatic papyrus specialists like the sitatunga antelope and red, black and yellow papyrus gonalek.
Summary of The Day: After breakfast we'll go for a nature walk to the salt lick - a pool where salt sediment gathers - where you will see numerous animals gathered here to lick the salt from the soil. This is one of the main highlights of a trip to Mburo, and we must be very quiet and careful not to disturb the animals who may run off if they spot us.
Then we'll return to the lodge for lunch. Later we'll go for a canoe ride along Lake Mburo to see the hippos, water birds, and crocodiles that thrive here.
Summary of The Day: After breakfast we'll transfer to Kampala, where you can take a short city tour before your flight to discover local attractions and markets.
When you're ready your guide will transfer you to the airport for your flight home.
